Buckle up and hold on to your wallet as we follow the wild ups and downs of the American stock market through the eyes of stunned Sirius XM investors. Sirius Satellite Radio's commercial free music and blockbuster talent seemed to make it a sure-fire investment. After buying out their only competition in 2008 the stock was poised to go through the roof, but something went horribly wrong. Like fellow investors who had put their money in the once safe holdings of banks and mortgage lenders Sirius XM stockholders stood by helplessly as the value of their retirement funds disappeared and with it their life savings. Was it the bad economy? Mismanagement? Or something even more sinister?
Stock Shock exposes the down and dirty schemes and calculated market manipulation behind the glitter of Wall Street. It is a must see for anyone who has ever lost money in stocks...or fears they're about to.
